“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players”
-As You Like It, William Shakespeare

Lowell Ryan Projects is pleased to present The Fourth Wall, a two-person exhibition featuring sculptural works by Lincoln City Fellow David Hendren and paintings by Sami Korkiakoski. The show is named for the performance convention that imagines a wall––or, more aptly, a one-way mirror––separating actor from audience, where the former stays absorbed in its fiction, seemingly unaware of the very existence (let alone gaze) of the latter. An interesting power dynamic results: the object of the gaze maintains the power to interrupt it, to break the imagined distance between actor and audience and, by doing so, to renew that well-turned Shakespearean verse.
